I would test the vacuum hoses as a first look since you say that you press the brake and it dies.. a faulty vacuum hose would cause the stall because of the various vacuum motors around the engine which would not be able to hold open (or closed) by the vacuum needed.. Those are easy enough and only require looking at them. These other guys have given very in-depth suggestions too. I think if you do the vacuum test first it would be easiest and would give a good background to these other guys' ideas too: At least you would know the vacuum is all OK then anyway.. Check your vacuum to brakes and then the various hoses around your engine to see if any have "popped off".. the PCV valve vacuum hose is a good candidate as is the brake booster hose... give it a look!

I would check the IAC motor or idle air control motor, heres a little info.about the part.Stratus Sedan, 1999-2005 Idle Air Control Motor

Print


Description & Operation

Not for Dodge Stratus Sedan
The idle air control motor (IAC) attaches to the throttle body. It is an electric stepper motor. The PCM adjusts engine idle speed through the idle air control motor to compensate for engine load, coolant temperature or barometric pressure changes. The throttle body has an air bypass passage that provides air for the engine during closed throttle idle. The idle air control motor pintle protrudes into the air bypass passage and regulates airflow through it.
The PCM adjusts engine idle speed by moving the IAC motor pintle in and out of the bypass passage. The adjustments are based on inputs the PCM receives. The inputs are from the throttle position sensor, crankshaft position sensor, coolant temperature sensor, MAP sensor, vehicle speed sensor and various switch operations (brake, park/neutral, air conditioning).

When engine rpm is above idle speed, the IAC is used for the following functions:


Off-idle dashpot Deceleration air flow control A/C compressor load control (also opens the passage slightly before the compressor is engaged so that the engine rpm does not dip down when the compressor engages)

SOURCE: MY 1997 SEBRING STALLS WHILD DRIVING AND WHEN I COME TO AN IDLE

My daughter had this same exact issue on her 97 sebring as well. We checked EVERYTHING else before replacing cars computer (ECM) and wazoo it was fixed. We had replaced spark plug wires, plugs, O2 sensor, egr valve...etc and it was the computer after all that. So pull yours out and take it to car quest or autozone etc and see if they can test it. I would bet thats your problem. GOOD LUCK!! Let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

SOURCE: 1990 chrysler will not start

Does it have any of these sensors, coolant sensor, air temperature sensor, MAP sensor? Any one could have gone bad. First check your fuel pressure. Then you can go on diagnosing the problem. After you do the fuel pressure test post your findings so we can continue helping you diagnose the problem. Hang in there don't give up yet.

SOURCE: I have a 96 Chrysler

faulty computer
faulty wiring
excessive carbon in combustion chamber, when hot, pre-ignition occurs. try using high octane gasoline first, but wait until empty, before filling up. it will take some time before the new gaz gets to the engine as the gaz lines and pump still have the old gaz.

another possibillity is water in the gaz tank.
when cold the gaz enrichment might compensate .

Test the fuel pressure. With gauge connected to the fuel rail turn key on, listen for pump, when it stops,turnthe key off and leave gauge connected for an hour. The original reading should been 50lbs., if it drops any more than a couple of pounds the pump is bad. The M.A.P. sensor sounds like it was another item in itself.

It sounds like they have got the distributor out of time. You will need to adjust the distributor. That is what it sounds like.

Stopped while driving replaced fuel filter and pump and crank shaft senor


I suspect you have a bad camshaft sensor. It is part of the distributor. To check, remove distributor cap and rotor (1 screw for rotor) and check for brown dust. If yes, remove slotted wheel and clean optical sensor. If car starts, you need a distributor.

Crank sensor has no affect on system. It is used for back up only.

Can you hear pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key on?
